Fall, the color of change. Reds, oranges, browns and greens color the forest surrounding the kingdom of Thiris. A cool breeze rushes through the land causing not only the trees, but also the streets to feel cool and refreshing. Today is the last day of fall. Thiris is holding their annual Falls end tournament. There will be a multitude of activities on this fine day. Everything from merchants selling their finest goods, games, contests, fortune telling, food and of course, the biggest event of all, the tournament. [See below for merchant/games/ food list] The tournament draws in people all over to come and join the festivities as it offers a very charming prize. A wish granted from the King himself, within reason, of course.
Beside the festivities causing the streets to be crowded, the architecture of Thiris is quite simple but nice nonetheless. Old English style homes would riddle the northern parts of the kingdom where the nobles and upper class would live. The streets would be cobblestone in the main parts of city but would fade into dirt out of the gates. The outer houses would be made of a mix of thatch, wood, and clay/mud. Their structures seemed to hold quite well. As most kingdoms, the closer to the castle you went, the more rich the area was. Even the church seemed to be riddled with decorations far surpassing most of the kingdom. This kingdom would be considered rather small; however, it holds a very large population for its size. On top of that, Thiris is a human only kingdom, the only one like it, as a matter of fact. This kingdom is now ruled by the great King Alexander. He carries on the dream from his prior fathers to keep the filth of the inhumans out of their kingdom and have a pure and clean environment, save the slaves and toys, of course.
Overall, Thiris is very prosperous and has seemed to be untouched for quite some time. In the very center of the kingdom lies a huge stone church that has been all but chiseled to perfection. There are many paladins, priests, and nuns that live here teaching the ways of their religion and helping those understand the purity of being human and that they are here to clean up the filth in His name. Due to the church being the main hand within the kingdom, Alexander takes their word as law and intends to hold a crusade against the biggest filth that exists at this point, Edowen.
Though today marks a great day for the Falls End Tournament, but it also marks the day of a harsh reality for those who hold true to their religion. Today, there will be elves. Not any elves. The main rulers and nobles of the kingdom of Aeria, better known as the elven kingdom. Though the humans believe everything but themselves is filth, they intend to make a temporary pact with the elves to erase the filthy Edowen off this earth and rid themselves of the biggest threat. That meeting will be held fairly early in the day as to not mess up any festivities.
The tournament will start funneling in contestants within the early hours of the day. There will be 4 bracket groups. All contestants will face off one on one until there is a winner of each bracket. After there is a winner from all 4 brackets, the 4 victors will gather for the main event. A free for all. The last man standing will be crowned the victor and will get their request from the king.
